A leading figure in the development of opera buffa, Baldassare Galuppi was also much admired as a keyboardist, though his many sonatas largely remain unpublished and unknown today. Usually comprising two or three contrasting movements, these graceful and charming works juxtapose the melodious and the bravura, the melancholy and the ebullient, often recalling the music of Domenico Scarlatti or the young Mozart. Matteo Napoli enjoys a busy international career and plays on a number of highly praised Naxos recordings. Volume 2 will be issued on 8.572490.


Review By Giovanni Desideri ,Giudizio Universale,June 2011

Galuppi, divina semplicità. Potremmo sfidare in questo modo chi non accettasse l’esistenza di una tale categoria estetica, nel definire il primo cd dedicato alle sonate per tastiera di Baldassare Galuppi “il buranello” (Burano 1706 – Venezia 1785) eseguite da Matteo Napoli per l’etichetta Naxos. Per farne la contabilità, il disco raccoglie otto sonate, una delle quali in quattro movimenti, tre in tre movimenti, due in due, per finire con una Sonata in do maggiore, composta da un solo “Allegro” (op. 98 nel catalogo stilato da Hedda Illy delle opere galuppiane).

Review By Piano News,May 2011

Es soll eine Gesamteinspielung werden und die Aufnahme ist nicht nur editorisch eine Bereicherung, sondern auch musikalisch: Napoli kristallisiert in seinem Spiel die verschiedenen Stimmungen, die von Ausgelassenheit, Eleganz, Bravour und Melancholie zeugen, heraus und zeigt damit, wie reizvoll diese Musik ist.
